This “Islamaphobephobia” has been going on since 911. Whenever an Islamist Islamists, the knee-jerk reaction is to express concern over our reaction to it, rather than the act (similar to how when there is Democrat wrong doing, the story is about Republicans “pouncing”). And it’s not just in Europe; the pro-Hamas demonstrations and riots indicate that it’s here as well, and we’ve been letting many in at the open border.

There are countries where people with political views that differ from those of the governing authorities are subject to governmental abuse and ruin just because of their political opinions. We have a name for these countries. They are totalitarian.
